TP-Link router

The needed configuration for the Internet connection can NOT be done via the Quick Setup. You need to exit or end the Quick Setup in order to proceed with the configuration.

Setup Internet connection

On the menu left go to Network → WAN

and configure the following:

  • Internet Connection Type: PPTP or PPTP/Russia PPTP
  • Username: enter your StudNet user ID
    (can be found in the StudNet activation email)
  • Password: enter your StudNet password
    (which you choose at StudNet account registration)
  • Addressing Type: Dynamic IP
  • Server IP Address/Name: login.stw-bonn.de

Apply the setting with Save.

If you have lost your username or password you can reset your account.



The router should now connect to the network by click on Connect.

The status Connected should appear and the Internet IP Address should NOT be „0.0.0.0“ anymore.

If there are problems to establish a connection check the above settings, especially Username, Password and Server IP Address/Name again.

On the devices connected to the wifi router, a dial-in using the Internet login is NOT NEEDED anymore. The wifi router will establish a connection automatically if one of the connected devices tries to connect to the Internet.
